The Funky Little Lion Outfit

We interrupt this extremely long absence from the Marsh Madness blog to bring you this:

Well not Eve per say, but the clothes on her back.

And yes, clothing is what made me come back to my blog. I know, my priorities are wacked. I have so many cute little stories about what my girls did or what they said, but they will have to wait. Because the real reason I made a blog post is so that I could post this outfit that I sewed into the sew-a-long of project run and play. Being very new to sewing, to say I'm intimidated would be an understatement. My husband encouraged me to try and sew along this season and post my creations. It might sound sweet, but I think he just wanted me to shut up about it. Or maybe it's because football season is here and he wanted me busy so he could watch more games. Regardless, I'm going to try to sew along most weeks and my husband rocks.

This week, we had to do a remix of this pattern. At first I thought I would sit this one out, but then a vision of cute little textured capris popped into my head and I went to work. I needed a matching shirt and the idea of using the bias strips to make a funky bib came right away. Overall, I'm very pleased I didn't sit this one out. I pushed myself out of my comfort zone and as long as no one on the internet laughs at my work, I'll consider it a success!

After sewing the outfit, I envisioned taking her pictures in a field of tall yellow Kansas wildflowers. They are growing everywhere in these parts this time of year. I would have the outfit "Wildflower Chic" or "Wildflower Child." Then it stormed and stormed and the next day it rained. all. day. It stopped raining for about 15 minutes and we ran outside to snap a few pictures. I had to think of a new name since there were no wildflowers, but it was pretty easy considering the colors and texture scream "lion" to me. So there you have it, the "Funky Little Lion Outfit":

Isn't my Everz so cute? She's really looking grown up lately!

I made my own piping for the bib, a first for me, but very fun!
Love the texture on the pants!

My Everz Beaver is so stinkin' cute! Even when she's not into taking pictures for her momma.

Please tell me 3 years old is not too old to be rockin' a cute ruffly bum!

Our goober at her finest!
